Wrestling Diplomacy
« on: November 08, 2013, 01:29:47 PM »
"As we can see in the Olympics or World Cup games, sports could boost a sense of national unity under the one national flag. National identity is important to build an unified nation. I hope my challenge as a foreign wrestler will help Sudanese people to recognize their own identify, and peruse peace in Sudan.”                 - Yasuhiro Murotatsu

Muro’s final match while living in Khartoum: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0moPTCX140

Earlier match: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Od8WRzvPuu8

One of Muro’s first matches while in Sudan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTjaY4RJSoQ

As you can see, the first takedown wins the match
